We received this lovely letter from a donor:
“I was contacted last year by one of your employees, known to me as Jenny. She was approaching me to donate towards Sea Rescue.
As Sea Rescue is very close to my heart, I was interested, but Jenny made it all worthwhile. She has an amazing way of ensuring that people are listening to her and her passion and professionalism has to be commended.
We all so often receive calls for donations and before the person has got their story out, we have said “sorry not interested” and put the phone down. With Jenny, it is so different and a pleasure talking with her. She is a real asset to your organisation and I think she deserves a big thank you.
This year, she has once again, been in touch asking if it would be possible to buy more tickets and it was a pleasure increasing my debit order.
She certainly has the “gift of the gab” and a year ago we were all talking about her in the office, saying what a thankless job she has, having to ask for money, and yet she does it so well with her sunny and cheerful disposition.
Many thanks and regards, Karyn”
